Pumps for severe duty applications

Severe duty applications call for pumps that offer above average wear life. The Warman MC pump, engineered using the latest hard alloy and elastomer technology, can easily manage the large size particles in dense abrasive slurries.

The range enables different material combinations to ensure the most appropriate pumping solution can be provided for any given application. “Weir Minerals is the only pump manufacturer that facilitates this level of flexibility with all-metal or all-rubber lined options or a combination of both,” John Otten, divisional product development manager at Weir Minerals (seconded to Weir Warman Africa), says.
